As you finalize your Week 11 NFL bets, here are three Detroit Lions bets Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.
As usual, before digging into Week 11’s best bets for the Detroit Lions let’s check out last week’s results.
RB Jamaal Williams, Anytime touchdown (+100, BetMGM): One touchdown
Jamaal Williams, 70-plus rushing yards (+152, FanDuel): 59 rushing yards
QB Jared Goff, Under 33.5 pass attempts (-105, BetMGM; -102, FanDuel): 26 attempts
On to Week 11 now, as the 3-6 Lions try to extend their winning streak to three and also win back-to-back road games against the 7-2 New York Giants. The Giants have had plenty of one-score games this season, and only being a 3-point favorite on Sunday points to the sentiment their good record is not being bought into.
As you lock in your betslips for Sunday’s Week 11 NFL action, here are three Detroit Lions bets to consider.
Odds via the sportsbook(s) noted.
Best Detroit Lions bets for Week 11 at New York Giants
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, Anytime touchdown (+155, FanDuel, +145 DraftKings)
St. Brown’s ankle injury is behind him, with 30 targets over the last three games.
St. Brown has not scored since Week 2 against the Washington Commanders, as his red zone targets have dried up (just one over the last three games). The Giants have allowed six touchdowns to wide receivers in their nine games.
But the Giants have allowed a heavy target share to opposing wide receivers (64.4 percent). Combined their blitz-heavy tendencies with Jared Goff’s solid work against the blitz again this year, and St. Brown’s target share will not be seriously threatened by the potential returns of DJ Chark and Josh Reynolds on Sunday.
This St. Brown touchdown bet is a true hunch. He’s due for some positive scoring correction.
RB Jamaal Williams, 75-plus rushing yards (+170, DraftKings)
The Giants have the NFL’s 23rd-ranked run defense (133.2 yards per game), and they’re allowing a league-worst 5.5 yards per carry. Seven individual rushers have topped 75 yards on the ground against them this year, and it’s nearly eight (73 yards by Ezekiel Elliott in Week 3).
With D’Andre Swift in line for limited workloads until further notice, and the weather possibly working against effective pass offense, Williams should hit the high end of a 15-20 carry range rather easily with potential for more than 20 totes. More than 75 rushing yards feels easy, and 100-plus rushing yards is +425 on DraftKings if you want to go a little more aggressive.
QB Jared Goff, Over 1.5 passing touchdowns (+135, DraftKings; +134, FanDuel)
Goff has multiple passing touchdowns just once since Week 4 (five games), and the Giants have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in three of their nine games. But New York has been a little more vulnerable lately, allowing over 300 passing yards or multiple passing touchdowns to the last three quarterbacks they’ve faced (and four of five).
A bet on Goff to throw at least two touchdowns is easy to pair with the earlier bet on St. Brown to score, as the Lions signal caller would be halfway there with a touchdown to the Sun God.
